2016 Information Security Conference & Hacker Events Calendar

With the new year here, it's time to update our annual events list. Last year’s list was extensive, to say the least, but it seems 2016 we will have to pick even more carefully if we don't want to spend all our time attending conferences. Of course, be sure to book early to avoid disappointment -- as you know these events are always growing in popularity with more people understanding the import of information security. Please let us know if we missed any events.
